A New WordPress Site for Tompkins County Workers’ Center

Posted on March 8, 2011 by ari

Before we moved to Ithaca we were researching where we should move to, and among our criteria was that our new home be politically active and dynamic. Ithaca scores high on that front, but not only as a mecca of sustainability action – among other groups focused on economic justice, this little town is home to Tompkins County Workers’ Center. My anarcho-communist heart sang when I checked out their awesome offerings – events and trainings fighting workplace bullying, workers’ rights advocacy including a hotline, and active networking with other community groups including religious folks and living wage employers. SO AWESOME. They became one of the reasons I fell in love with Ithaca before we had even moved back. Little did I know that a couple of years later I’d be enlisted to make their new website!

The new WordPress site has some fancy features including a contact form and integrated Salsa Labs donation and membership management, a new PayPal shop, a prettily customized Events plugin, breadcrumb trails (those are the little links at the tops of pages that help you find your way back to parent pages), and carefully finessed content and organization that makes TCWC’s many programs and campaigns eminently more accessible and sharable. I also created custom illustrated help documentation to aid the folks at TCWC in keeping the site up to date, to supplement our in-person WordPress tutorial.
